You may submit a photo to any current page. Note if the contest has been closed we will still post your photo, but you would not be able to win any prizes. To see the guidelines for any contest see also look for additional specific guidelines on the particular photo page. To have your photo posted you MUST SPECIFY WHICH PAGE or CONTEST YOU WANT YOUR PHOTO POSTED TO. See the above link for other REQUIRED posting details. Note: On certain pages like the butterflies, cats and clown pages we have plenty of entries. On those particular pages, we are only accepting photos that offer techniques or styles that offer variety to that of those posted. Questions may be directed to Once any photo is posted to any photo page it will not be removed without a fee. Please make sure you submit all of the correct information when you submit your photo. To later remove your photo or make any changes in name, e-mail or the like requires a $5 administrative fee to pay the editing costs. This is a free service to post photos and we simply can not continue to make changes of any kind with out an administrative fee. By submitting photos you are agreeing to these terms.

NOTE: If you are looking for a specific face to help you and you don't want to have to look through 100 different photo pages (or literally thousands of photos) we would suggest you first look by division, then by title. If you then do not find it, we would suggest you look in the Halloween and Free-for-all contests. In these two annual contests we receive the largest variety as well as largest quantity of submissions. There are very few restrictions in these contests so there is a very wide variety of photos in those contests. Also most of these offer a tab at the bottom to go to the next page in line. This will speed your search. FOR THE VERY BEST, LOOK FIRST AT THOSE PAGES IDENTIFIED ON THE LEFT AS "BEST PAGE" highlighted in yellow.
